it called a sincere apology for the journalist's actions on the border back in march. the former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton, immediately criticized president clinton's visit, saying the trip is what he called a significant propaganda victory for north korea. dan lothian has our report from the white house. >> reporter: it was a secret mission by a high level envoy. former president clinton, even as he was getting flowers on his arrival in north korea, the white house was mum. no details, no confirmation until almost ten hours later. why this delicate diplomatic dance? >> this obviously is a very sensitive topic. we will hope to provide some more detail at a later point. our focus right now is on ensuring the safety of the two journalists that are in north korea right now. >> reporter: according to sources intimately involved with the efforts, this was the culmination of weeks of quiet diplomacy, and that senator john kerry, chairman of the foreign relations committee, was also closely involved. one expert suggests the deal was virtually done before former pres

. when he leaves the air space is my guess is when we will wear officially from the u.s. government on this? >> incredible. >>> and tamron, now to the big picture, never mind the incredible story would be if those two journalists were able to come out with bill clinton, what about bill clinton's new role back on the world stage? it wasn't too long ago that clinton was seen as a potential liability for the obama administration. the story in "newsweek" about president clinton's migs and this trip could be clinton's second chance in pyongyang. this still marks a big moment for kim, it's a sort of recognition that the north korean leader has been eager to have for more than a decade. bill clinton man all but absent from the news since obama took office. so as the president's post white house legacy continues to be shaped, how much of it might be shaped by views overseas. kevin sullivan is a "washington post" foreign editor, and kevin is it also the expectation overseas that bill clinton is going to come out of north korean with these two american journalists? >> i think everyone believe

. savannah guthrie now joins us. savannah, interesting to see the kind of white house dance, or just as reverend jesse jackson has done a number of these kind of individual missions said an hour earlier, so is that to be expected? the white house needs a little distance from this? >> i think it's to be expected, especially at this moment when the former president is still in north korea. this is very delicate, trying to secure the release of these two american journalists. the white house may want to say something but it's not going to say anything until those journalists are safe and that is the reason. interesting, though, that they did reach out to say this is a private mission and that may be in service of the former president's goals over there. i think we will hear more of the back story. it's hard to imagine the former president, so connected to the current administration by hillary clinton, his wife, the secretary of state, wouldn't have the overt approval from the white house to do this but you're not going to hear that from the white house today. >> savannah, you know, one
, tell us to pull the plug on you. it sounds awful but that's the message getting out to a lot of people. >> certainly, they have taken parts of the plan and distorted some of them. some of them are legitimate concerns that some seniors have that some health care procedures may not be available to them late in life. but the one that they have really distorted is one that revolves around hospice care, and what basically that is is studies have shown if seniors write down a much more detailed -- not just a living will but real directives about what kind of care that they want, that then their wishes will be complied with and many times what they have found in states that do this a lot better than it's done nationally is that many times people don't want to die in an icu unit. they want to die at home with their family, and clearly -- >> i'm with you on that. fair enough. most people would be smart to make these declarations clear so their relatives don't have to make the decisions like in the schiavo case where the whole country got involved. senators got involved. members of congress were
joins us by phone. >> my sources are telling me that bill clinton is on route if not already in north korea. he is -- a deal has already been worked out to release the two american journalists who were taken on the border between north korea and china. the deal has been worked out, i am being told from a senior u.s. official. bill clinton is going there to put the final touches on the deal, shake hands, and there will be a photo opportunity. greta: it is extraordinary that the former president is going to north korea. i do not think any american president has been in north korea to my recollection. how about yours? >> i cannot remember. i cannot remember if jimmy carter has been or any former president. what is interesting about this story is that for bill clinton to go, we always thought it would be gov. bill richardson. he has a long history with the north koreans. it seemed that he leaked out at one point that al gore had approached him because these women were working for his current team. it was always assumed that when the time was right bill richardson would go. but gov. richar
and only a stray thunderstorm expected. angie goff, give us the news. >> i will get started by saying it is not terrible news out there. we have some tieups to tell you about. we will begin with southbound on the bw parkway where it meets 198. crash activity is pushed to the right shoulder. drivers are back up too 175. a lot of volume past 32 on 95, as well. no incidents or accidents on the roadway. turning on the cameras and taking it outside under sunny skies, 270 southbound is free flowing from germantown road to montross but still a little below speed. we are estimating the drive time at 15 minutes. hello, virginia. 66 eastbound. here's your shot. we are delayed from the capital beltway -- actually approaching the capital beltway. but the congestion is breaking apart nicely on this interstate. 395 northbound not the same situation. we are crawling along here from the capital beltway to seminary. that's just volume. to wrap it up we take it to realtime graphics where at northeast dc at 24th and south dakota avenue is where we have crash activity confirmed and crews are on the scene
president bill clinton is once again on the world stage for u.s. supremacy. good afternoon. i am mindy basara. the husband of the nation's top diplomat is in north korea to negotiate the release of two jailed american journalists. the international standoff over the countries nuclear program. >> former president bill clinton is not only in north korea, but in direct meetings with the country's reclusive leader, kim jong il. even the north korean experts in south korea, the objective behind a surprise visit is no surprise. >> the fact that he is going there to north korea probably means that they have already made the arrangements for the release of the two reporters. >> the two reporters, laura ling and euna lee have been in custody since march. there were convicted last march on charges of spying. each was sentenced to 12 years of hard labor. although the white house calls it a private visit, the former president will reportedly bring up other issues that divide the two countries. >> it could be a very significant opening in breaking this downward cycle of tension and recrimination be
know you're following that for us. >>> and we just want to give you a quick look at how we got here. laura ling and euna lee were arrested march 17th after allegedly crossing into north korea from china. they were working on a story on human trafficking for al gore's startup media venture, current tv. then in june the pair was convicted of illegal entry and so-called hostile acts. in a close trial they were sentenced to 12 years of hard labor. now, let's go ahead and chart the clinton connection. you've got ling and lee and they work for current tv which is owned, of course, by al gore. and then al gore was clinton's vp, the former president, married to secretary of state, hillary clinton, now in africa. no role, by the way, in bill's private mention. so, you can see the connection to all the players going on right now in this. so, is this just one big photo-op or a turning point in one of the world's more dangerous disputes? let's ask our international security analyst, nuclear weapons expert also and president of plowshares fund, he joins me live from washington. joe, let's just l
. look at the thing that got us into the recession. the housing market. we have seen in june, the last month for which we have numbers, an increase, a little one, an increase in the price of homes. a lot of homes being sold and that is interesting. what is happening people are buying homes that distressed or in foreclosure. the increase in home prices in june in major metropolitan areas was .5%. boy, erica, we'll take a gain as opposed to a loss. existing homes the price from may to june went up 3.6%. low compared to last june a year ago, but over the course of one month we have seen an increase. new home sales. this is interesting. we stopped buying and stopped building new homes. up 11% may to june. down compared to last june but up in one month. a lot of stuff going on giving people a sense this economy might be on the mend. >> if it might be on the mend how do we get to the mending point? is it the government intervention? there were programs put in place before obama was in office so can his administration take credit? >> there are mixed views. some economists say if the economy c
, and there could be a few black-and- white films, a few color films, as there used to be. hollywood made the greatest dramas ever made, beautiful movies, and now, because the theaters -- studios are owned by larger companies, and they are so concerned about their stock prices and making acquisitions, they beat the subsidiary up to make money. in the old days, the heads of the studios where tough. they were like harvey weinstein, who is tough and serious, but he loves movies, and he is a showman. i think the old studio heads, who, incidentally, i worked for, like jack warner and sam goldwyn, they love to movies, and they love to to produce different kinds of films -- they love movies -- loved movies, and they loved to produce different kinds of films. it has been going on for two generations now. i t tnk that even television started out as a promising. in the 1950's, there were great writers writing, wonderful directors, like john frankenheimer doing "playhouse 90," and then they got the idea it of doing half-hour shows, and we had 40 or 50 years of that, so the audiences have been taught

but not until tomorrow for us and that could trigger showers and thunderstorms tomorrow. but today, mostly sunny skies. a hot afternoon. high of 92 degrees. we'll have more details on the forecast. right now let's go to lauren demarco in for julie wright. good morning. >>> we have a new accident 50 westbound at the airport and the h.o.v. lane is blocked so stay to the right to get past that. inbound new york avenue dealing with delays at bladensberg road. on the brakes inbound and then again at the 3rd street tunnel. no problems to report on the beltway. we do have a little bit of slow traffic on the op from college park toward silver spring and bethesda. here we are at the mixing bowl in springfield, 95 northbound looking good as you head in. h.o.v. lanes are moving well. and we do have some slow traffic northbound on 95 from stafford toward route 1. and after that it's a smoother trip toward 395 and the beltway. 395 moves across the 14th street bridge without a problem. that's a check of your tab tab. >> lauren, thank you very much. >>> and new this morning, a tishooting in prince george's cou
father arrest one of its professors. i'm serious. that's in the "hardball sideshow." >>> but first, u.s. congressman lloyd doggett of texas was shouted down at his own town hall meeting in austin, texas. austin is what i'm told apparently the most sophisticated political town in texas, sir. why the zaniness over the weekend at your town hall meeting? let's look at the pictures while you speak of what was going on there. >> what better slogan for the party of no, no way, never, than just say no? one of the reasons is many of these people were summoned in by the local republican and libertarian parties. they didn't even live in the neighborhood. they were there not just to be heard, but to ensure other people weren't heard on this. real desperation tactic. >> what are they up to? why do they want to shut down any talk of reform in health care? >> i think these folks are really desperate to stop health reform. they see that for the first time in 60 years we really have with president obama and a democratic congress a chance to enact meaningful reform and deal with these policies of health
these charges. we will say, again, as we've said before that we said before when they left u.s. soil, they never intended to cross to north korea. according to the charges, they confessed. so we know they're sorry. we're very sorry. and we hope that the north korean government now will show compassion and just let them come home. >> lisa, i mean, does it concern you that the north korean government is saying they were there for a smear campaign, not acknowledging they were independent journalists? >> all we can say is that they are journalists and they were doing their job. my sister has been a journalist for years. and that's really all we can say. you know, we weren't in the courtroom. we don't know any sort of specifics other than what was released. we just hope, you know, given the fact that we know the girls have apologized profusely, that they will let the girls come home to us. it's been -- it's been three months. and that's been too long for us. >> stay with us. because coming up in five minutes' time, we're going to be talking to victor cha, the director of asian affairs at the white ho
and friends, it is an honor to have you with us today and it is an honor for us to host this important celebration. early this year, mason was privileged to be one of the many universities and colleges across the nation to commit itself to the yellow ribbon education enhancement program. a provision to have post 9/11 veterans, the act in 2008, this initiative is designed to extend higher education funding for service men and women who served after the september 11 2001 attacks. i know that mentals of that day still re-- memories of that stay dill remain in all day still remain in all of our hearts. each-year mason's military and veterans office serves nearly 1,000 active duty reserve national guard and veteran students. it provides them with assistance and academic counseling. just as important, this office helps our military men and women adapt from military life to collegiate life and establish a sense of community in what to many is a new environment. we take much pride in the work of this office. today's celebration would not be possible without the leadership and vision of virgini
